Default Simple SE hookup wiring

I have just picked up some of this rather nice wire (impulse buy whilst buying transformers and tubes!)
From merchants website:
"22 awg, solid core, 50 ft. spool. The "real-deal" wire for vintage amp work, from the same manufacturer that supplied it to Fender. Double-cloth jacket has a waxed cotton outer braid and a Celanese inner braid. Now you can snip, push-back and solder without reaching for the wire strippers!"
it is certainly sexy....

Should this be OK for wiring of power transformer, OPTs, motor run cap, choke etc? Or should I go for a heavier gauge?? I figure I shouldn't see currents over 175mA, given that is the capacity of the transformer, and higher currents are all on the PCB tracks (heaters).....

TIA
Lee

For chassis wiring (short distances and point-to-point), 22 AWG is rated for 7 Amps. I wouldn't worry about it, although I'd prefer to use something a little heavier (18) for the heater connections if they're not just directly connected to the power tranny.
